Valentines Day Gift Guide 2015

It is nearly that time of year again. The mushy, soppy, lovey dovey, smoochfest that is…Valentines Day!

Haven’t even thought about it yet? Where have you been?
Luckily I am here to lend a helping hand…just call me Cupid (but without the nappy...or bow and arrow!) Oh heck…just call me Jade!

I have scoured the world wide web to find some of the best Valentines gifts for your loved ones, so without further ado I give you…My Valentines Gift Guide 2015!


Sweet Nothings...
The biggest and best seller at Valentines apart from Roses of course is Chocolate and Sweets. This gorgeous box of chocolates from Godiva would make any girls heart melt!

£20.00

After something a bit more fun? Why not get your loved one a personalised tub of their favourite childhood classics from Retro Sweets. These little boxes are adorable!


I Love You sweet Words Boxes
£18.00

Spice Up Your Life
I adore this wooden spice box from Spice Kitchen. It contains handmade spice blends and teabags that are bound to put a bit of kick in your love life!

£34.95

Love Game
This unique game called The Art Of Conversation is a great way to get to know your partner. Whether you are looking to work on your relationship or just want to have a bit of fun, it is designed to bring couples together and develop a deeper understanding of each other. 

£9.98
...available from all good bookstores
(Always wanted to say that!)

I must admit Joe and I have given it a go and we loved the way it brings out conversations we would never naturally fall in to. We sat down together without any distractions and just chatted. It was so nice to spend quality time together and we learnt things about each other that we never knew!

Here is an example of some questions...

* Do you speak to each other in at least as pleasant voice as you use to your friends?
* An ideal night in is…
* When and why did you last say thank you to your partner?

It made us realise that there were things in our relationship that we could work on but also made us see how much we knew about each other and how much we still have in common.

This is one of the top gifts for me but tread carefully as your other half may misread it that you think couples therapy is needed! 


Blow Them Away!
Here is one for the ladies. Gents we all love a good blow dry but they are expensive to get done at a salon. Why not treat your lady to a top of the range Braun SensoDryer this Valentines and cut her 'getting ready time' in half!

£74.99

I will be reviewing the Satin Hair 7 over on my YouTube channel soon too so send them my way for a few hair drying tips!

Make Their Heart Pop!

I love popcorn and when I discovered these bags of low calorie deliciousness I was so happy! Love Popcorn is a range of high quality gourmet popcorn in 5 tasty flavours. My favourite is the Cocoa Crisp but the savoury Sea Salt and Black Pepper comes close second. 

I really recommend these for snuggling up in front of the TV so why not pick up a box set and a blanket to give to your loved one this V day!

Pamper Them

The Ginerva tea tree range from Janiro is a line I have only just discovered and I am raving about it already! I have been trying the Green Tea Marvel Gel and the BB Cream which I am loving. The Marvel Gel is a gentle exfoliator and it is one of the best I have tried. My skin feels smooth and I have less blemishes just after a week of trying it. 

The BB Cream is also fantastic and may be swaying me away from my regular brand. It evens out my complexion and doesn't have the orange tone most BB creams on the market seem to give me. 

Why not treat your special lady to one of these Bright Eyes Perfect Complexion box sets this Valentines?
Bright Eyes Perfect Complexion
£44.95



Serenading Sweethearts

Not a great singer? That's fine! Albumcards have the perfect gift for serenading your loved one without breaking into song yourself.

Albumcards are a fantastic unique gift for today's download crazy world. Who needs CD's anymore it is all about downloading music. 

A personalised greetings card and digital album all in one. The album's artwork is printed onto a card along with a personalised message and download code inside which in a few clicks of a mouse will be yours to play. Starting at just £9.99.


I have the Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith Albums and they are fab. Super easy to order and even easier to download. A great unique gift for your sweetheart! 

And The Rest Is History

I have mentioned the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal on the blog before and I love everything they do including the breathtaking Poppies at The Tower of London this year one of which my Mum was lucky enough to get her hands on. 

£79.99
They have stunning jewellery on their online shop and none more beautiful than the new First World War Poppy Necklace commissioned to help commemorate the Centenary of the First World War (1914-1918). Its design is based on a 100 year old dried and flattened real poppy and I think it would make a beautiful Valentines gift.

If you want to get your loved one a little piece of history you can find this necklace and more on the Poppy Shop Website.

Have a very special Valentines Day and remember the greatest gift you can get your Valentine is love and perhaps an extra big hug!

  1. I was completely at a loss as to what to get my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and someone at work suggested a retro sweet hamper. I didn't even know you could buy those sweets any more, what a find! I used the All Occasion Sweet Shop (just because they seemed to be the most reasonably priced) and they had all the sweets from the 80s in there, def worth a try if you are stuck for what to get your other half. retro sweets
